Los Angeles: Late pop star Michael Jackson and his family's personal possessions will go under the hammer later this month.
The collection of household memorabilia varies from the priceless to the bizarre - with items including socks, underwear and general family possessions to photo albums, the black tuxedo worn by Jackson's pet chimpanzee Bubbles, and 56 master tapes of recordings made by The Jackson 5, reports contactmusic.com.
"Some of the items are ordinary items that could come out of any household - but when it has the provenance of being from the
Jackson household, that's history," said Peter Seigel from auction house Gotta Have It! Collectibles.
Most bids start at $100, with the exception of the master tapes, which start at $1,000 (588 pound). The items will be sold online until Sep 19.
